Have you ever made a meal you were so excited to try and were so disappointed in the outcome? That was me last night. I am trying to get out of my food rut and I feel like I am failing. I found a recipe in my Kraft Busy Family Cookbook for Creamy Chicken and Pasta Casserole. I changed a few things in it since I am a super picky eater and only like a few vegetables. I don’t like celery, onions or cooked red peppers so I opted for fresh green beans and corn.
I was so excited the whole time prepping thinking it was going to be so good, and it was just alright. The chicken, cream sauce and pasta were good. I liked the cream sauce the most. This also happened with two other dishes I made earlier this month. It wasn’t completely horrible; it was good, but not amazing. I have some for leftovers tonight, I am looking forward to giving this dish a second chance. Maybe it was my choice of vegetables or the fact that I over extended myself in the kitchen yesterday with 3 different things going on at once. I made chicken in the crockpot for quesadillas, my apple cinnamon butterscotch chip muffins and pasta casserole.
Whatever it was I am getting tired of this ho-hum recipe rut. Maybe next time I will make this sans vegetables. Have you had any recipes that just fell completely flat for you?
